Our Safety Protocols

Community is Everything

Dentistry is all about helping people, and in that spirit, we go above and beyond simply helping those who walk into our dental office for a checkup. We also take the time to get involved with our community and work with a number of charities and community groups, including Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We’re always looking for new ways to help, so if you have a worthy cause that you think we could help with, let us know!

From Dental Checkups to Smile Makeovers

To many people, the dentist’s office is just the place they go to have their teeth examined and cleaned. But many families have needs beyond basic preventive services, and we’re here to deliver. Do you need a dental crown to repair a broken tooth? Or are you simply looking for a way to improve your smile’s appearance? Our dental family can combine their skills and experience to perform a variety of treatments with one goal in mind: to give you a beautiful, healthy smile that you can enjoy for decades.

Personalized Dental Experiences

No two smiles are alike – no one understands that better than we do. During your first visit, we’ll talk to you about your dental health history as well as your oral health; this, combined with a thorough examination, will give us a good idea of what your needs are and what sort of services that your smile will require. Additionally, we offer sedation dentistry that can soothe even the most anxious patients so that you always feel comfortable calling us for treatment when you truly need it.
